    Afrihost seems solid enough.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    It's true that server locations have impact, you need to select hosting where majority of your web visitors comes to you in that case. You will need VPS, then dedicated, then cloud hosting later, that's totally correct really. So please better read about your needs in future.

    Even if you are on something as low a shared hosting plan you can always get a content delivery network and change your name servers for the website to be served there. No doubt dedicated is always better but even on dedicated you would go to a cdn. This wil negate alot of the response time for the initial https request and reduce page speed for that user. In terms of top level domains however you would still be a .com .co.za or whatever you choose and google has placed a nice chunk its ranking algorithm in that.

    If you're still searching for a robust and reliable web host for your website; I'll suggest you give Namecheap Host a try. All my clients website are hosted there.

    Do you know one thing I like about them?

    Not only is their hosting packages very cheap, when compare to BlueHost and co., but they have the best Customer Supports.

    Their customer supports are always available 24/7 to help you fix stuffs, or give quick solution to your website issues.

    If am to rate their service, it's not gonna be anything less than 10/10.

    I recently moved over to www.bluehost.com they are awesome and easy to use at a great price even thou they are international.

    I used about 7 different hosting companies over the years and would recommend them without a doubt.

    They offer a free domain for the 1st year, Free SSL certificate and best part of all 1 click WordPress install which walks you through all the steps to basically get your site up and running with little difficulty.

    I am an affiliate and you will receive a signup discount of up to 60% using the following link Bluehost Discount Link

    They are also recommended by WordPress, happy to answer any questions...
    If you have multiple sites you will want to look at the unlimited sites options to keep your running costs fixed.
